I have been experimenting lately, trying to make crunchy paleo biscuits.. these biscuits are not crunchy, however they are more like a biscuit than a cake.
The combination of the ginger, sweet date and crunchy pecans make these biscuits so tasty, that this recipe is a keeper….
If you want to make the biscuits look a little more special, use an egg ring or a circular metal cookie cutter to mould the biscuits into perfectly shaped biscuits. To do this, place the egg ring or circle cookie cutter ring onto the lined baking tray, then place some biscuit dough inside the ring, using your fingers, press down the biscuit mixture firmly and evenly to make a perfect flat circle of dough, then slowly remove the metal ring / cookie cutter. Place the ring back down onto the baking paper at the position you want the next biscuit to be – then repeat the same process. The result? – well you will get lovely round biscuits which look like the ones in the photos below.
If you don’t have an egg ring or a circular cookie cutter, don’t worry because the biscuits will taste just as delicious… Enjoy x M
- 2 Tablespoons tightly packed grated ginger
- 1 Tablespoon ground ginger
- 1 cup coconut flour
- 1 cup almond meal
- ¼ teaspoon Himalayan finely ground pink salt
- ½ cup tapioca flour (arrowroot flour)
- ½ cup honey
- ¾ cup coconut oil
- ¾ cup chopped dates
- ¾ cup pecans roughly chopped
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 175 degrees celsius
- Place the grated ginger onto a cutting board and finely dice (as finely as you possibly can)
- Place coconut oil and honey together in a saucepan or microwave bowl and heat until coconut oil has melted and mixture is warm (not hot).
- Add the finely diced ginger to the coconut oil mixture and stir until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients (including the nuts and dates) together.
- Add the coconut oil mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
- Separate the mixture into small balls.
- Flatten the balls one by one with your hands to form a biscuit and place on baking tray.
- Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes until they start to become golden brown.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool before removing from the baking tray (this is very important because the biscuits will harden once cool, if you remove them too soon when they are still warm, they are likely to be fragile and will split in half).
